This 1906 letter was amongst the Holden materials found in the Town vault.  The rail bridge in question is likely the one that is discussed in the Smith Farm Railroad Crossing entry found in this collectionThe Smith farm it references is the one noted in the Enoch Smith House Cellar Hole and Enoch Smith Barn Cellar Hole entries in the Cellar Holes collection.  

That the letter was responding to concerns expressed by the Clarendon Selectboard speaks to the importance of rail lines to the community back then.
